Nigeria will grace the World Cup for the sixth time next summer after the 1-0 win over Zambia on Saturday at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium, Uyo secured the sole ticket in Group B .

“Right now we are back on track, but the hard work all starts for the Super Eagles from here,” Fashanu told Completesportsnigeria..comexclusively from Los Angeles, USA on Tuesday.‎

“It show who we are and a little of what we have for now. I say well done to the team. Let’s watch and see for now, but at this time all teams are dangerous. We should not hope to be drawn with any particular team or avoid any team.

  • Oga go sit down jor…..did u play for the eagles when they needed you the most……dont put ur mouth in our eagles

    • Leke, he hasn’t said much. But sincerely do you think the world cup is a stroll for our eagles?? Our qualification was easy but the world cup is a different ball game. It’s just sincere truth. One love

    • Ifeanyichukwu Nwobodo is right our group was tough… All the teams are former African champions

    • Did you think it was actually easy? Have you forgotten that Algeria and Cameron where the favorites to qualify from the group? Did you forget so soon that the group was termed group of death? That we didn’t loose any does not in any way make it an easy qualification.

  • Yes You are right. He wants to get involved in Nigerian football. He SHOULD go back England.

    What’s all these”WE” FASHANU” talking about? He chose to play for England other than Nigeria only became a “Nigerian” when his football career was over and not recognised in the UK. WHAT HAVE YOU CONTRIBUTED TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF FOOTBALL IN NIGERIA OTHER THAN TRYING TO MILK THE CORRUPT SYSTEM THROUGH SPORT.

    I had a dream that Nigeria will win the World Cup in Russia

  • No draw is easy in the world Cup, so save us those talks, we know since

  • He should take his opinion to England, after all they qualified for the world cup and won’t find it easy either.

  • Who ask am for opinion. Make him go back to England go find work do.

  • Sir. No country comes to the world cup expecting a fair draw. Other countries won to get there.
